Buhay Coke Bloggers Party with SM Hypermarket



I'm excited to party last night and my mind was floating already and imagining the people inside the event having a great time and partying, at the middle of the night in EDSA, me and Lace were stuck in slight traffic and bus mayhem. I just can't believe that it took us 1 hour bus ride from Megamall to SM MOA and its our last resort to ride the bus if we can't get a nice taxi deal.

so instead of taking that P600 special vehicle service offer in SM Megamall (is that legal in there?) , we decided to take the risky ride of the bus and head to SM MOA Taste Asia for the "Buhay Coke Bloggers Party". And after having a massive conceptualizing moment in a meeting hours before that for another event, I'm glad that they open up the bar in Taste Asia for the party and everything is FREE and the food is FREE and the drink is FREE and the dance floor is FREE and the seat is FREE and the smiling with people is FREE and Coke Zero is FREE and wait.... we have a one case of Coke Zero...FREE!!! wow! wow! wow! I should call this a FREE night for bloggers.

it was such a nice party event for us, since we always stay online blogging and for me its like an exercise hahaha kidding...

I missed a lot already, and we arrived at 10pm and the party never stops at 10pm, so me and Lace grabbed some food, and saw asked Jester to know what's happening and he said that the bar is open and they serve Pale Pilsen, I was shock to know that there is beer in the house! hahaha, after grabbing our meal, glad that there are still food available for late comers, there are more cokes and more...whatever!!!!! whew! I'm still having a hang over after those coke shots and beer. Met also Margaret and Lester, its a nice chat with new people in the blogger world, just talked about some blogging events coming. And also met our friendly friends in twitter and plurk, the Dot.ph people.

Since I missed some part of the show, I missed other friends and people who went there ( yeah! coz I saw the photo stream at Aileen's blog and saw some of cool people I missed to meet there)
but didn't missed the event, the show and the nice people of the blogosphere. Also Marcelle did a magic trick show again and this time with Charmelle of the 26k girls of Deal or no Deal.

Btw, its my first time to taste the Coke Zero, and wow! It was like drinking an ordinary Coke, but the difference of Coke Zero from other Coke is that the Zero has no calories, meaning... zero calories, and it taste good better than the Coke light.

thanks to Aileen Apolo for inviting us to this great bloggers event! wohoh!

Iba ang kain pag kanin - Chowking bloggers event "Chao fan style"


and here's my video presentation of the event

Thanks to Yehey.com and Chowking for inviting us again for another learning experience in eating rice. Yes! Burger now is out! and the rice still rules our tummy! "Iba ang kain pag kanin" means "Eating is different when it comes to rice". is a cute and catchy subtitle for the Chowking Chao Fan rice meal and at the bloggers event last Wednesday at Chowking, Eastwood City, we learn that the Chao Fan rice price drops down, and because of the crisis mania we keep on hearing in the news lately, I'm glad that our fast food resto like Chowking are now dropping their price for the Chao Fan meal.

also got a love at first sight moment with the Chao Fan spicy, its a fried rice with lots of spices and I enjoy the taste of it, and it says bye bye already to other rice meal like the pork and beef chao fan.

more photos and stories below

During at the event, I joined the tongue twisting contest, and grabbing Adrian with me to join and he got lucky in winning the twisting game ahhahaha. Rice is a heavy load, but its like a gas for me that power up my whole body and be energetic, I always eat rice and it saves me money and time whenever I'm on a rush, sometimes I just grabbed a chao fan rice box in Chowking and eat it inside the taxi or bus whenever I'm on a rush to a meeting or event.

The Extra feeling at Italianni’s


My video of Italiannis bloggers event - Extra Something

I was invited to come and attend for an Italianni's special extra treat last week and I just experience a one of kind event that they will serve an extra something for your extra time while waiting for your big meal at Italianni's .

Even that arrived minutes late at the Bonifacio High Street, I just got in time for the extra gimik that Italianni's launch it that day. They will serve some extra food for you! And as a customer, I know everyone will be happy to get a free extra food or something you want to add more extra in your meal.

more stories, photos and videos below after the link

Its a big surprise and the Extra campaign at Italianni's make everyone select any 3-4 free type of food, it can be a salad, baked mussels, orange amaretto, or bread for you. I just got excited when I heard extra, but I haven't tried ordering a big pasta with extra sauce on it, but ordering a big bowl of pasta with 2 giant meatballs still makes me happy and didn't mind the extra treat.

But after the bloggers event, a couple of days in SM MOA, me and Lace went there to Italianni's in order for me to share the extra feeling with my partner, and then she was surprised to see the extra food and my poor pasta was out of the balance and the extra food made us full early.

It's a great offering to all customers and I know everyone likes to have freebies.

as of the bloggers event, I am happy on the turn out, it was one of the most enjoyable bloggers - food trip for me. They even sang a happy birthday to me and got a free ice cream cake on the spot! aaahaa, you'll see what I meant after you view my video above.

Italianni’s VP for Operations, Mr. Paul Manuud shares, “We wanted to create something, an experience that our diners would remember us for. We want every Italianni’s dining occasion to be wonderfully pleasant and memorable.”

Ok, if you don't believe me, visit their branches, Italianni’s already has 12 branches all over Metro Manila: Greenbelt 2, Glorietta 4, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, Greenhills, Tomas Morato, Eastwood City, Gateway, Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Trinoma and recently at Robinson’s Midtown in Malate.
